Wildernest Road closure and detour begins on Tuesday

The Wildernest Road Bridge, between Stephens Way and South Adams Ave, will be closed for approximately 14 days beginning on Tuesday in order to complete needed maintenance and resurfacing work. Due to the nature of the work, a full roadway closure will be necessary for the duration of the project. During the road closure, detour signage will direct motorists to the alternate recommended route. Stephens Way will remain open during the project as will the segment of the Blue River Trail north of the bridge; however, periodic trail closures may be experienced.

This is one of many projects that the town has scheduled through an Asset Management Plan which charts the town’s asset management needs over a ten-year period. The need for this project was identified in 2008 with the project scheduled for 2010. Although this project will cause some inconvenience to drivers, making repairs now will prevent potentially costlier future fixes with longer closures and will ensure that the bridge remains serviceable for many years to come.

The Silverthorne Public Works Department respectfully asks for motorists’ cooperation to ensure roadway and construction safety during this construction project. Questions about this project can be directed to Dan Gietzen, town engineer (970) 262-7354 or dgietzen@silverthorne.org.
